Writing Good Code


I’ve always liked xkcd, because it’s clear that the author knows firsthand what IT really is about. Especially the webcomic “Good Code” highlights the conundrum with which every coder is confronted: write fast or well? In the first instance the danger of spaghetti code is always around the corner, whereas in the latter the requirements may have changed by the time you’ve finished your project.

Those who have read my blog know where my preferences lie. At least when you write at the speed required by your customer’s needs you stand a chance that it will have some useful life span.
